joined the navy in august and hopes to make a career and wonders whether that is realistic given the budgetary issues. the military today is filled with 20-year-old or a newly minted let tenants or others who will be the future leadership of the military. there is probably someone in the military right now. the general will be the future head of the chiefs of staff, but i suspect that virtually all of them are wondering whether a career in the military is realistic, is realistic given what you've seen from this body and what they have seen in terms of the budget but might inform whether they can make that a realistic choice to get >> i hope congress is taking notice of your provocative which i think is an accurate one. the decision regarding truman is going to be the first of many i suspect unless we do something to replace the sequester we know that it was never intended to happen, mr. secretary, as you mentioned. we should finished last year's appropriation process in the deficit reduction to align the sequester with a budget process and do a meaningful budget process and make
over a controversial comment about the murder of retired navy seal chris kyle. one of the military's most effective snipers killed over the weekend at a texas gun range. an iraq war vet charged with the shooting now, and after the news broke, former presidential candidate and one time congressman ron paul tweeted quote chris kyle's death seems to confirm that he who lives by the sword dies by the sword. treating ptsd at a fire range doesn't make sense. the tweet set off a chain reaction of criticism on line and all over the place, frankly. former congressman ron paul took to his own facebook page to respond to the outrage. he wrote this, quote, as a veteran i certainly recognize that this weekend's violence and killing of chris kyle were a tragic and sad event. my condolences and prayers go out to mr. kyle's family. unconstitutional and unnecessary wars have endless unintended consequences. a policy of non-violence as christ pretty muched would have prevented this and similar tragedies. one of those still unhappy with the congressman bein, sergeant a meyer. we all watched that cere
the parade of papers, "the houston chronicle." former navy s.e.a.l. chris kyle was one of two people murdered at a shooting range on saturday. kyle wrote the best-selling book "american sniper," detailing his service over four combat tours where he killed at least 150 insurgents. police say he was gunned down on saturday by 25-year-old eddie ray ralph, a former iraq war veteran who may be suffering from mental illness. >>> and "the kansas city star," a secret legal review concludes president obama has broad powers to prevent a cyber attack against america. the obama administration is said to be many the midst of developing new guidelines for digital warfare including how the military can react with preemptive strikes. >>> "the wall street journal." iran's foreign minister told world leaders yesterday tehran is prepared to resume negotiations over its nuclear program. the u.s. and european officials, however, are skeptical such talks will happen. iran has delayed similar negotiations in the past and is yet to formally commit a delegation to a new round of talks scheduled for later this month.
between when the attack began and 5:15 in the morning when navy seals glen dowerity and tyrone woods loster that lives. roughly 7 1/2 hours there. and i recognize that in any mill tear conflict, one inevitably faces the proverbial fog of war. but what i'd like to ask you to do is use the 2020 -- use the 0/20 hindsight we have now. if you could go back -- use the 20/20 hindsight we have now. if you could go back in time and play it other again. if at 9:42 p.m. benghazi time when the first attack began, you knew that at 5:15 a.m., two former seals would be on the roof of that annex and would face mortar fire, what specifically could have been done if we had that knowledge and i recognize that is a hypothetical but if we had that knowledge, what military options would there have been to prevent that loss of life and stop that attack at the annex? >> senator, as you said, it's tough to respond to a hypothetical. as long as we're talking about hypotheticals, the best that would have happened here is that we would have had a heads up and we would have had troops on the ground to protect th
to a place -- >> that is not a bad idea. sometimes it is on a navy vessel or sometimes it is back here in the united states. we bring them into a process and we can elicit information from them and put them behind bars. >> is the article iii process an ideal way? isn't there limitations in that process? >> i'm proud of our system of laws here and the article iii process and our track record is strong over the past couple dozen years. so many terrorists have been, in fact, been -- >> i understand. but the first priority is to develop information. but in article iii is not the most conducive to that. >> i disagree with that. >> what about turning over information that will incriminate them? >> it is tailored to the sixes. sometimes an individual will be mandaized. it means that the sfings they give you cannot be used in court. but in fact, the f.b.i. does a great job in eliciting information so they can get information as part of that negotiation with them. they let them know they can languish forever or we can have a dialogue about it. >> just last point. this case that i talked about,
planes and the smallest airforce as in the history of the country, the smallest navy since 1915, the smallest farms since 1940. it is about the cia. it is their intelligence gathering capabilities. it is also about public education. it is about non-defense matters. so i am hopeful that we can finally start voting in the senate rather than just complaining about what the house does. to the president, we bear responsibility as republicans for allowing this to happen. lead us to a better solution. if you do not, mr. president, he will go down in history in my view is one of the most irresponsible commanders in chief in the history of the country for what you have done, mr. president, that you allow the finest military in history of the world to deteriorate at a time that we needed it the most. let's not let that happen. >> let me just add or emphasize three quick points. one is, reducing civilians by attrition is a good idea, even at dod. i would remind you that yesterday, the recently departed secretary for policy argued in the washington post that we needed to reduce civilians at
